Motivated and ambitious trainees form a key part of our future. This is evidenced through our high retention rate. We also have a number of partners who have progressed their legal careers with Trethowans having initially joined us as a trainee.
Our objective is to provide trainees with stimulating and challenging work with an emphasis on direct client contact and hands-on experience from an early stage.
Trainees play an active and important role in each team. Their contribution is both recognised and appreciated. Through the combination of a structured training programme and an open and supportive working environment all trainees are encouraged to reach their full potential. We expect hard work, enthusiasm and commitment, but in return offer high rewards.
Our trainees are encouraged to participate in the firm's many social events and activities outside of the office and often meet as a group to socialise and are allocated a budget for nights out.
We have cricket, football and netball teams who regularly play matches against other professional services firms and clients. Newcomers are always welcome and you don't have to be a gifted sports player to participate!
We also have a social committee, made up of various members of staff, who organise events throughout the year such as theatre trips, summer BBQs and Christmas parties.
